Laura Veirs @ Mercury Lounge

Laura Veirs is an alt-folkster who comes from Seattle (I think). She sings upbeat country folk with flowing and catchy lyrics and her nerdish demeanor just adds to her charm as a musician. She has the range of singing whispery lullabyes to electric indie pop. Many of her songs reflect on human experiences and travelling. She was able to capture the sentimental qualities on her album live as well as rock out the heavier songs. When she played the catchy song “Galaxies” she passed around a bottle of body glitter and asked the audience to put some on their face. The show was really fun and she was just adorable on stage. After the show I was still humming her songs to the subway with a bit of glitter make-up on me.
